The purpose of this series is to help new believers (and maybe not so new believers) understand the building blocks of their faith and be equipped to investigate the difficult questions about their belief.
What is The Bible? (Session 1) | 55 min
To understand Christian apologetics and Christian living, you must start at the beginning: what is the Bible? And why does it matter? This lesson will give you the big picture view of the story of the Bible and God’s purpose for humankind.
Why does the Bible have “Testaments”? (Session 2) | 35 min
The Bible is divided into two “testaments.” A common misconception about these “testaments” is that they are completely independent from each other. This idea lacks understanding of why the Bible canon was put together the way it is and what purpose each Testament serves. This session will address these questions and give you a big picture understanding of how these two parts of the Bible work together.
Why should we care about the Old Covenant? (Session 3) | 45 min
The Old Covenant or Old Testament is often overlooked in favor of the New Testament. The Old Covenant is criticized for portraying an angry God or being irrelevant to Jesus’ story. As mentioned in the previous lesson, there is a specific reason why Christians need to study the Old and New Testaments together. This lesson will dive deeper into the importance and specific purpose of the Old Testament to help you develop a foundation for further study.
The New Testament is not just about love (Session 4) | 53 min
Most will be familiar with one of the four Gospels and the story of salvation through Jesus. God’s love is the most emphasized aspect of the New Testament and a very well meaning slogan for today’s culture. However the New Testament is not just about love and if that’s all we learn from it, we will miss the greater point of our faith in Christ. This lesson will help broaden your understanding of the New Testament so you can be better equipped to learn and grow from this section of the Bible in your personal study.
